    jeebus, how do you wear a size small? I'm 6' 165lbs and I wear a Medium in J.Crew... small size would not fit.... unless you have really stubby arms.
    that is a M, he said he could wear S sweaters

    I have pretty long arms actually. The S j.crew shirts I have are mainly the flannels, which I think run a little bigger, and a few secret washes which the arms are indeed a bit short on. I live in Alabama so my sleeves are rolled up 90% of the time anyway. I wash them sparingly and hang them to dry so they don't shrink. Also, I can pull on the sleeves a bit while they are wet and actually stretch them a little bit if needed. I agree though, I shouldn't be able to wear a small in anything. edit: As for the sweaters, they must run big or something because a small actually fits perfectly everywhere on the 3 that I have.

    Here you go, straight out of the box, wrinkles and all. The last one shows pretty well what I'm talking about with the arm holes. This is a size M.

    For reference I'm about 6'1" 175lbs and can I wear a small in all J.Crew sweaters and some of their shirts. The pulling across the shoulders is from my having my hands in my pockets like that, but it is almost too small. I have broad shoulders.


    Thats the problem I have with their shirts. along with a lot of other places
    Looks too tight.I have broad shoulders and i can never both have arms forward or the back will rip out. Or the pits will be weird like extra foreskin lol.
    Im like 5'11 165 and I cant fit into some smalls.Its weird how bodies are.

    That fit looks really good on you. Wish I was 6'1.

    I'm 5'8....smalls are sometimes too big, and extra smalls are sometimes too small.



    *talking about J.Crew shirts.

    Could you emphasize more? As in they feel it is too slim, because that is actually a good sign to me.
    i got my wool flannel ludlow suit today, and i actually really like it. i'm no stick but i'm not a fattie. it's not thom browne tight/shrunken and i got a great deal. i like the thin lapels.

    The lapels on the old Ludlow fit were still very slim, but could possible be worn casually and without a tie.
    The current lapels on the Ludlow fit are just stupid.

    This looks fine to me and works with the tie he's wearing. I'm with the other guy; MC disapproval is sometimes a good thing.

    Hey, I am SW&D guy at heart(A MC guy Monday-Friday) so the lapel thing doesn't really bother me.
    If you wear this suit you will look better than 99% of American men. The suit might look dated in a few seasons, but by that time you will likely gain weight and you will need a new suit anyway.[​IMG]

    This older Ludlow jacket is decent.

    Hey Guy,

    Yeah, those look "okay." Nothing to write home about. I guess I could wait to see them in the store before deciding.

    Nothing aside from maybe, maybe that green madras shirt has blown me away about the J. Crew s/s 10.

    Robert
